“In modern narrative, it is not so much what story is told, but the way it is told that captivates the reader.” This statement is true of Ernest Hemingway’s writing style used in his novels. An example of this is in his novel The Sun Also Rises. His unique writing style sparked reader’s interests from the beginning of his career in the 1920s. His simple and direct prose complemented by the use of short and factual sentences and his repetitive dialogue demanded that readers look beyond the surface. Hemingway termed this technique as the Iceberg Theory.
His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth". Nathanael was a well-respected man and even Author Herman Melville dedicated his great novel Moby Dick to Mr. Hawthorne. I learned many interesting facts about Mr. Nathanael Hawthorne, but the one thing I absolutely loved was he was intelligent, inspiring, exhilarating, and inspirational when he wrote. The one novel I love and happened to read was The Scarlet Letter, It was about a red letter “A “being sewn onto a woman’s dress for adultery and was considered sinful.

Junot Diaz’s “How to Date a Browngirl, Blackgirl, Whitegirl, Halfie” uses the second person point of view to tell an odd little story. This point of view enhances a story that is at its core a strange tale. I think it is the second person point of view that makes this story interesting and gives it value as a literary work.

Because he is thinking to himself the story seems disjointed leaving the reader with a lot of unanswered questions that only to which only the narrator knows the answers.
She discusses her warm love for her daughter, and her pain in the way Margaret is viewed by society. She opens up by alluding to a controversial quote by William Bennett, in which he stated "You could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down". She invites the reader to think about why it is a huge controversy for a man to say that about one group of people, but it is widely accepted to consider abortion okay in the circumstance of a mental disability.

She says “why then do we as a society view abortion as justified and unremarkable in the case of another class of people: children with disabilities?”.
In the 1920’s Sandburg began one of his most ambitious projects including his study of President Lincoln. Lincoln was an idle to Sandburg and Sandburg admired what he did. Sandburg’s early writings dealt with his belief in social Justice and equality and were written in such a way that they barely resembled what most people thought of as poetry.

Now to think that Sandburg Would steal work from other poets is outrageous, people just don’t know good poetry when they see it.

I have heard of cases of women that use abortion as a birth control or just because having a less than a perfect child or just because a new baby doesn’t fit in their family. I always thought that abortion was an option because the life of a child would be miserable, for example, a teenager that was raped and she is unable to properly take care of her child; or a fetus diagnosed with a disease that would make the child suffering and the chances of survival are

As one of the greatest American authors ever, "He wins our assent, perhaps now more than ever. His emotions were prophetic, his antennae were out to the truth"(Bloom 201). These words, nonetheless, describe the great Ernest Hemingway. Born in 1899, Hemingway covered nearly every war by way of journalism, as well as fighting, until his passing in 1961.
